This is not the first time that we see two athletes of the factory Red Bull to join in any of the entertaining productions that gives us the signature of the energy drinks as a promotion. If the past year were Dani Sordo and Andreu Lacondeguy those who left us a nice duel between four and two wheels, now it is the turn of another great diamond in the quarry of the engine that have the austrians, together with Jorge Prado, the star in the making of motocross Spanish and world.
In this way we see Kalle Rovanperä once more to ride on the ice with his Skoda Fabia R5 (that is the unity of the team of Toni Gardemeister that he used in the first test of the WRC 2019), accompanied in this case by the snowboarder Eero Ettala, who does not hesitate to show us their tricks on the ice of a frozen lake in Kuusamo, Lapland, while the pilot of the WRC2 Pro demonstrates his brilliant control of the steering wheel. All this in an atmosphere that was required to maintain the necessary security measures before the obvious danger that the vehicle will end by hitting the athlete in winter.
Although in a normal rally surely Kalle would have opted for another type of tyre, for the scenes you chose the same product that was used in the Monte-Carlo Rally, a wide wheel intended for asphalt and equipped with nails that allowed to have the necessary grip to maintain control and in turn to have a bit more freedom to make turns on the frozen surface. If someone was left wanting to see Skijöring after the Ice GP 2019, this is the opportunity to see a new variant with a rally car.
We didn’t want to have too much grip, which would have been a problem in some scenes that we shot. Driving a rally car on an ice rink can be described as a kind of dance. You can drive and do what you want – Kalle Rovanperä
